|And buy the horse I did.|
But before that, I wanted to remind everyone about Spud's history. If you haven't already read that post, I encourage you to. If you just want to get to the photos I will do a tl;dr version: Previous Owner purchased him and his full-sister from a cattle auction. P.O spent time ground-driving him before listing him up on the classifieds for $700. Driving Trainer who had been helping me to find a horse encouraged me to purchase him. Aaaand, I did. Driving Trainer put 2 months on him and then he came home.
Let's take a trip down memory lane, shall we?
(Seriously, this is a HUGE photo spam. Sorrynotsorry.).
